1996 - Improving our advocacy

A Women and Decision Making Skills project is run via OWN with a series of consultations and skill development workshops on effective advocacy.

The OWN Community Festival is held in Miller’s Point Celebrating Older Women’s Creativity funded by the City of Sydney. The Theatre Group continues to wow audiences at the Community Aged Care Conference at Sydney University.

At La Perouse, the group provides a moving performance of White Hands, Black Hands at a reconciliation event. OWN’s Northside Wellness Centre is set up in Chatswood. 

Wyong OWN is formed with a priority on health, transport and projecting a more positive image of older women in the media. 

History is herstory too.
